On-tap at the source, on to the beer:

This brown ale has the color of amber brown, topped with a half-inch of head, leaving lots of white spots around the glass. The aroma hits you with a punch, especially with the nuttiness aspect. More specifically, the aromas od toasted chestnuts, caramel, toffee, and a whisper of squeezed citrus make an aroma that is dreamy.

The taste must have heard how much I adored the aroma of James. It has kicked up its end with a flavor that is nutty galore! Hazelnut and then some, succulent toffee crisp, a lining of herbal hops which keep the lovely sweet flavor at check. It's a medium bodied beer, but with a certain sturdiness. Despite that, this brown ale is very easy drinking.

Like James Brown, I feel good! Simply put, one of the best brown ales that I have come across.
